Spring Heights Offering Family Camps and Traveling Camps!

By Shea James

Spring Heights Camp and Retreat Center is pleased to be able to offer three options for experiencing camp this summer. We can’t wait to see you! At our camp property, we will be hosting Family Camp for either a traditional camp experience or a retreat; read more details below. DaySpring, our mobile camp, is traveling this summer! We will be offering DaySpring to all young people 6-18 years old at local churches in each West Virginia Conference district. We hope to see you at some time somewhere this summer!

Please know we are diligently following the CDC and the American Camping Association guidelines to provide safe and fun programs this summer. These guidelines are outlined in our promotional materials, which will be available by mid-April. If you would like to receive summer brochures, please email amy@springheights.org to be added to the mailing list!

Family Camp Means:

  • Families come to camp together, and adults are responsible for children’s supervision throughout the entire stay.
  • Families can come for a day or a whole week! You pick the dates; we look forward to seeing you.
  • We can host multiple families at once! Encourage friends or family to book a family camp experience and enjoy camp together; we can accommodate up to ten people in program activities at a time. Separate families will have private sleeping arrangements.
  • Camp is open to all ages this summer!

Family Camp: Spring Heights Camp and Retreat Center is a sacred place; your family will grow closer together and more in love with God thanks to your time at family camp.

Camp Option:

Allow Spring Heights Camp and Retreat Center to plan your schedule like you are a camper. Your family will enjoy everything the camp offers, including riding horses, walking the prayer labyrinth, the challenge course, pool, and hiking. You will enjoy fantastic food from our excellent kitchen staff, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Choose to stay in our rustic cabins on the ridge or in our comfortable air-conditioned lodges by the dining hall; either way, you will get the whole camp experience as a family.

Cost: $50 per child per day. Adults stay free!

Retreat Option:

Choose how to spend your time at Spring Heights Camp and Retreat Center; you can stay to yourself and do as you please or have the Spring Heights staff plan activities for your family such as horseback riding, challenge course, pool, or hiking. You can bring food and cook for yourself or enjoy a tasty meal prepared by our outstanding kitchen staff. The retreat option gives you the flexibility to enjoy as many activities as you like on your family’s schedule.  Families can stay in our relaxing retreat cottages or our comfortable air-conditioned lodges.

DaySpring is a mobile camp ministry that creates opportunities for youth to experience camp in their community. For the summer 2021 season, we will offer DaySpring in multiple locations and help the youth experience summer camp. At DaySpring, campers play games including Gaga Ball, explore the Bible, sing silly songs, and attempt archery. It is all the fun of camp in your neighborhood! Watch for dates and locations near you. We’ll announce locations by May 1st.

Cost: Free for campers.
